One of the great veteran exponents of African blues, Boubacar Traoré has been a legend in Mali since his groundbreaking hits of the 1960s. He's still in impressive form, matching his thoughtful, soulful voice with an acoustic guitar style that mixes blues riffs with West African influences. His easygoing, gently rhythmic playing is backed by a trio of ngoni, calabash, and balafon.

Trained at the Accademia di Brera and as an architect, Turin-based Ezio Gribaudo brings to his visionary art a distinctive sense of chromatic precision and historical determination that derive from his work as a painter, sculptor, and graphic artist. Gribaudo is also one of the most established art publishers of his generation, having promoted many of the greatest figures in modern art since the 1950s including: Francis Bacon, Giorgio de Chirico, Willem De Kooning, Marcel Duchamp, Peggy Guggenheim, Joan Miró, and Henry Moore.
Born in the streets of Los Angeles, Las Cafeteras has taken the music scene by storm with its infectious live performances that remix Latin roots music in what the LA Times has called a "uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock. . . . Live, they're magnetic."
Silvia Westermann (Castillo's widow) will discuss Chilean artist Sergio Castillo (1925-2010) who was the first Chilean artist to create large-scale metal sculptures. Castillo studied in Paris at the Ecole de Beaux Arts and the Academie Jullian de Paris, in Chile at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Chile, and at the Art Student League in New York. Castillo was in residence at Boston University in 1985 and BU is home to three of his works, Explosion in front of the Metcalf Science Center, Earth Orbit in the Questrom School of Business, and Free at Last in the Marsh Chapel Plaza. His sculptures can also be found in Beijing, Madrid, New York, and Santiago. He won numerous awards for his work, including a Fulbright Scholarship.

The group's second album, Habana Dreams, was released in the spring of 2016 with special guests that included Rubén Blades, Issac Delgado, Wynton Marsalis, Angélique Kidjo, and more.
